"Who'da thunk the beet/watermelon combo would be so delicious?" Christiana asked in our email exchange.
"I would think it would be great! The family veggie stand next to us at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers' Marke gave us FOUR bunches of beets on Saturday. It was like that joke where someone breaks your back windshield and throws in an accordion," I replied.
1.5 cups of watermelon, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 shucked corncob’s worth of kernels
½ a small zucchini, cut into ½" cubes
1 green onion
1 jalapeno, deseeded and minced
1/4 cup leftover cold chopped beets, optional
Juice of half a lime
Coarse ground black pepper
1 tsp. Alliyum, Cha-cha Lima or Roxy Taco
Combine all into a bowl and enjoy with Luke's Organic multigrain chips, or, as a side dish/salad.
